BIP Appoints Trevor Hutchings as Partner for Sustainability

Last Updated on: 21st November 2023, 09:36 pm

International consulting firm BIP has today announced the appointment of Trevor Hutchings as Partner for Sustainability. Trevor will continue to grow BIP’s sustainability consulting services, to help organisations improve their ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) performance and clean energy transition.

Passionate about sustainability and improving lives, Trevor will also be supporting BIP deliver their B Corp commitments, following their recent certification, highlighting the intent to balance people, the planet and profit.

Trevor brings a wealth of experience having led the growth and diversification strategy at professional services firm, Gemserv. He spent much of his early career in Whitehall departments and with the European Commission in Brussels working on climate and environment programmes. He also worked at WWF, the global conservation NGO, where he was Director of Advocacy.

As well as his role at BIP, Trevor is chair of the Green Purposes Company set up by the UK government to safeguard the green mission of the world’s first Green Investment Bank following its sale to Macquarie, the global infrastructure investor. He is a Fellow at the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment and holds the IoD’s Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction.

Trevor Hutchings, Partner at BIP, commented:

“Businesses must do more than simply create shareholder value – they must discharge a wider responsibility to society and the environment. But this isn’t a trade-off: good business is good for business, with those organisations prioritising ESG issues shown to outperform rivals.  As the effects of climate change start to impact the way we live our lives, as an expanding regulatory landscape begins to bite, and as staff, clients, suppliers and investors increasingly challenge business norms, it is important that all organisations place ESG at the heart of their strategy, commercial model and operations.

“BIP works with clients to make this happen. With some 4500 people across 13 countries, BIP has the expertise to help organisations with their sustainability journey and capture the benefits that flow from improving ESG performance.

“I am delighted to be joining BIP at this exciting time as we work towards a better and more sustainable world.”

Martin Wassell, Managing Partner at BIP, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Trevor to the team; his experience and expertise speaks volumes and we’re incredibly excited about the unique skillset he’ll undoubtably bring.

“His appointment supports our drive to further strengthen BIP’s sustainability consulting services and ensure we as an organisation are offering the most cutting-edge sustainable solutions, and accelerating how we improve the lives of our people, clients, and wider communities.

“It’s important to remember that being a B Corp is more than just hitting a target. It adds a new dimension to our culture and a potent ingredient for our future success. Having Trevor onboard will ensure that we can continue to drive meaningful change and make a lasting impact for future generations.”

Danilo Perrucci, Head of Sustainability Global Department at BIP, commented: 

“The BIP Group has always made Sustainability one of the most important cornerstones of innovation and transformation of companies, working with passion and value orientation for all business, social and environmental ecosystems.

“The historical moment in which we live makes us now aware of the need to face the climate crisis and be ready to accept a new paradigm of inhabiting planet Earth, in which we can learn to stimulate more regenerative ways of living and working.

“Trevor’s entry into our international Sustainability Practice is a source of pride for all of us, and the first of many steps in accelerating our efforts to lead the UK’s largest companies towards leadership in a sustainable economy.”
